Subject: I have not seen him
But I have heard from Cliff Hucker!

Although this is an excellently changed-up setlist and I give it 4 outta 5 all the way around, I give Evan S-ants 5 outta 4!

Does anyone else have him on top of the list for best reviewer...? :)

Yes, I know it's juvenile but I couldn't resist. Besides, life isn't about weathering the storm, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

So few people here give props to righteous reviews. Far too many jump on the not so glorious opinions and call them negative Heads. So I figure maybe I should be the change I'm looking for.
Evan is so right on about this show. I gave this a listen because of his grate review. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. This show rocked. I loved it.
And BIG, BIG thanks to Rob Bertrando and Darrin Sacks for the tapin' and the postin' of this sweet show.
Also, props to the guy in the audience who keeps yelling, "sit down." Classic! Dude at a Dead show who thinks people should sit down. I remember sitting at a Dead show. It's because I was too fucking stoned to stand up.
Peace and hang loose.

Subject: A Masterpiece Audience Recording-2nd Set Only
Starts with jam into drums. Very lively sound and personable audience presence. For its time, this recording is a masterpiece of a masterpiece, no-holds-barred performance. Jerry had "it" that night and let the magic brew and slowly blend. Hear the big fat chords he explodes upon us and then tell us '78 was a sub-par year. Zounds! It makes you simultaneously weep and laugh.

The jam transitions into Jack A Roe like from city to country in one magnificent slash, then into Playin>Shakedown>World To Give>Playin>Around. In every measure Jerry uses his lemon squeezer. It scalds the pith out of us.

World to Give -- magnificent. Back into Playin? More magnificence. Listen to Jerry go nuts on the arpeggios. Excuse the audience coughs.

Cleveland has a nice GD following. They know how to rock.

Rock on, Cleveland!
